Winter Fantasy and Pathfinder Society – So Happy Together!

Pathfinder Returns to Winter Fantasy!

Card Games and Pathfinder Society Galore

Winter Fantasy is your one-stop shop for winter gaming, and we’re proud to announce that Pathfinder games are back again in 2016!

With adventures for the beloved Pathfinder Society, as well as the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, Paizo fans will find a little bit of everything at the show! We’ll have more details on exactly what adventures are available soon. We’ll also see the launch of the Season of the Runelords campaign. Play scenarios as standalone games or join in the Adventure Card Guild Organized Play campaign.

In addition to running these events, we’re working to line up some special guests for Paizo fans as well. More details will be announced soon!

Judge Signups go Live on Friday!

December 11th – Grab your spot early!

You know you love it: the thrill of holding all the secrets. Knowing what the dice will reveal. The sinister voices. Sharing in the thrill of victory with the players at your table. There’s nothing like being a game master.

The only thing that would be better? Earning a free badge and other goodies. Icing on the cake of being a GM – and we’d like to give you that delicious, delicious icing (we also should have eaten before typing this…).

Would you like to be a Game Master at Winter Fantasy? Keep an eye on our Twitter feed (@baldmangames), or the Winter Fantasy Facebook page. We’ll be announcing judge registration sometime on Friday – and first come, first served!

Calling All Authors!

Love GMing? We want to hear about it!

The Herald’s Guild of Dungeon Masters is starting to churn its engines again, and we’re looking for volunteers to help us stoke the fires.

As we rush toward Winter Fantasy and 2016, we want to start producing regular content for our members. Some of that content, like our seminars, will come from us; however, we’re just a tiny portion of the many knowledgeable and experienced DMs that make up the community.

So, we’re looking to you, our community, to write articles for the website. We’re accepting submissions for articles about convention and organized play Dungeon Mastering experiences. Of particular interest are:

  • Tips and tricks for the convention DM
  • Cool maps and other tools of the trade (pictures preferred!)
  • Horror stories that turned out for the best, or advice for a future Dungeon Master
  • How to handle cases where the realities of running a table sometimes bump against the rules of Organized Play

We’d like to offer our Dungeon Masters the opportunity to express themselves with a quick article on the Herald’s Guild website. We’re not looking for long or multi-part articles at this time, but if you have an idea you’d like to propose, please send your idea to questions@heraldsguild.com.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Winter Fantasy 2016 – Winter (Fantasy) is Coming!

With leaves falling off trees and everyone’s belly full of turkey, you don’t need us to tell you that winter is just around the corner. All is not lost, however, as with winter comes Winter Fantasy!
This year’s show runs from February 3-7, 2016 in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Registration opens in mid-December, so keep an eye on your inbox for your opportunity to be first in line to register!

Dungeons and Dragons at Winter Fantasy

Winter Fantasy continues to grow and offer more games, and we’re proud to be the best place to play Dungeons and Dragons Adventurers League content.
We will be hosting adventures in the entire 2nd half of Season 3: Rage of Demons. That’s everything from adventure DDEX3-8 to DDEX3-16 – including three world premiers:

  • 3-14: Death on the Wall 
  • 3-15: Szith Morcane Unbound
  • 3-16: Assault on Maerimydra

Winter Fantasy is your chance to catch up on all the content before the season wraps up on March 15th.
Of course, we’ll also be there to scratch that Epic itch – with the premiere of the Epic adventure opening to Season 4. We can’t tell you what’s in store yet – but you can be among the very first to experience this exciting new campaign at our show in February!

The Dungeons and Dragons eXPerience

We gather much feedback on the VIP Program after GenCon, and Baldman Games has decided to change the program a bit.  We are retiring the VIP Program, and will be offering a new, similar experience we are calling “The D&D eXPerience.”
The D&D eXPerience is something new. Members of the D&D Experience will have their own members-only HQ for quick access to staff for questions, pre-printed paperwork (like character sheets and adventure logs), and more.
At Winter Fantasy we’ll also keep a selection of local restaurant menus on-hand, and will be assisting members with ordering food and arranging for simplified order delivery. While the system is still being planned, we’re hoping to make it as easy as writing up your order, delivering it with your payment to HQ, and letting them know what table you’re at. We will then place your order, receive it, and deliver it to your table for you – saving you valuable die-rolling time.
Of course, what DDXP members really want is a unique eXPerience. To that end we’ll be running semi-exclusive adventures, GMed by the D&D Adventure League admins. Only the admins can run these adventures, and at Winter Fantasy, they’ll only be running them for D&D eXPerience members!

Winter Fantasy 40!!!!

Leaves are turning and falling. The skies are gray and the rain will soon change to snow. It’s another fall slowly changing into winter in the Midwest. The big summer shows are a distant memory and it seems forever before the sun will return. So what’s a gamer to do? Laugh at the weather and head to Winter Fantasy 40 that’s what!!
Winter Fantasy is the Midwests premiere winter convention for D&D goodness and more. We celebrate the 40th year of the show in 2016 and hope you can join us. This year we’re expanding back to our roots and brining all kinds of new goodness to the show. Check out the new items below and the website. We cannot wait to see you there!!!!
This years show runs from February 3rd to the 7th in wonderful (if you love snow) Fort Wayne, IN. Lots of details coming over the next week as we lock in our exciting event schedule.
